    ORF's do not come with an ejector block.

    Not only will you have to chase one down at additional cost, but from what I understand the installation location (which requires drilling and pinning) is critical to a proper operating firearm.
    Not something I want to try to mess with on my first FAL build.

    Imbels have the ejector block installed from the factory.

    About a year and a half ago Imbels were less that $200.00.

    No doubt that TDW and Colorado guns are making a killing on these now.
    When they bought them, the Imbels were obviously still importable.
    I would be surprised if they paid more than $150 for them.

    Tony as one Show Me state guy to another, Bobby built most of my kit and did the guncote on it as well. I"ve always have gotten compliments on it and walk bys at Jay Henges Area 44 shooting range (opposite side of the county from you). Plus I've known Bobby/SalBO since 94 or 95 which in internet years is like 50 years and have never seen anyone upset with him in any deal with him in fact just the opposite. He's a stand up guy.
    side note my son keeps pestering me to take him to Bangert Park to see that Sherman. In fact a good buddy of mine hails from up North and I think we'll take our boys together. He remembers it growing up as a kid up there.

    That was when there were NO kits. WE were waiting for the return of the IMBEL kits that belonged to P.W. Arms in Washington State (The kits we see with most vendors today).

    About 3 years ago, when kits were plentiful, DSA forged receivers were $400 and IMBEL forged receivers were $225-250

    Now there are NO receivers, so Imbels are $450!



    PS,...Ejector blocks and ejectors are IN STOCK and available with my kits.

    I'm a bookkeeper's son,
    I don't wanna shoot no one,
    but I crossed my old man back in Oregon,
    don't take me alive.

    I think the problem is that there are only a couple manufactures on the market. So they charge whatever they want. Take it or leave it.

    It's low demand for kits since their are no reasonably priced recievers available in quantity. And no large supplier wants to gear up for a low production run. FAC's tits up action timed out poorly.
